A ST. PATRICK'S
"MRS. FEED Xi OLSON. SOPRANO.
One of the singers at the St. Patrick's eve concert given last Thurs-
day night at the hall of St. Mary's Church, Albina, was Mrs. Fred L
Olson, soprano, who was born in San Francisco, CaL She has a soprano
voice of excellent quality, with arrange of two and a half octaves, and
Nature has been kind to Mrs. Olson in giving her willingness and confi
dence, and leaving her the possessor of that sweetness of grace and man
ner that is necessary for success. Mrs. Olson received her musical edu
cation from Mrs. Ellen Kinsman Mann, now of Chicago, and was a mem
ber of Taylor-Street Methodist Episcopal Church choir when Mrs. Mann
was in charge of that choir. While receiving excellent instruction from
Mrs. Mann, it was under the direction of Leo Charles Sparks, now of
Dresden, Germany, that Mrs. Olson made great progress toward a prom- s
lslng future as a vocalist She is still an earnest and painstaking student.
when he said Krelslqr's tone was so
marvelous that if you did not look, at
him when he played you might think
there were ten violins playing in uni
son. His playing Is as near artistic
perfection as one can imagine a human I
being reaching. Ana he seems equally
at home in all schools. He plays Bach
superbly and yet he plays the works of
, , , . l
the modern school with a finish, and,
where "needed, with a delicacy that is
unrivalled. You feel when hearing
Krelsler that he is an artist who could
never fail. Krelsler fairly overwhelms
you by his mastery of his Instrument.
You glory In music when you hear him.
You are thrilled with the realization of
what music Is. You marvel that a man
can do so much and you feel that you
want, him to play and play and never i
stop. Krelslers recital here will be i

Caruso, the tenor. Is quoted In the London
Magazine as saying that a man or nomaa of
high nervous temperament alone can succeed
as a lyrico-dramatlc artist. In the great op
eras a severe strain Is put upon the principal
singers, for while they are portraying love,
hate or revenge the two latter sometimes In a
whirlwind, so to speak, of orchestral music
and song they have tbe whole time to watch
the conductor, keep time and rhythm, and
fall not at the same time in reproducing with
perfect accuracy the composer's music The
nervous tension, therefore, it Is obvious; must
be far greater orl the operatic artist than it
Is on the actor, who only has to think ol his
action and his words, while the actor-singer has
to think of action, words and music In the
proper exposition of these lies that which con
tributes to success."
It Is about settled lhat the music to be
sung In connection with the series of Con
gresses and Conferences on educational and
religious lines Sunday afternoons; during a
portion of the' Lewis and Clark Exposition,
shall consist of: Oratorios "Messiah" (Han
del). "Elijah" (Mendelssohn). "Messe Sol
emnclle" (Gounod), and "Stabat Mater"
(Rossini), and also a "T Deum" (Sullivan).
Mrs. Rose Bloch Bauer will sing the so
prano solos In "Stabat Mater," "Elijah" and
the "Te Deum." This will be welcome news
to the many warm friends of this favorite
Pacific Coast soprano. This musical festival
at the Exposition Is largely due to the bard
work done In its bebalf In advance by Dr.
Stephen S. Wise, pastor of the Temple Beth
Israel. Dr. Wise has cultured taste and fine
Judgment In musical matters, and In this
direction be Is ably helped by Mrs. Wise.

According to the majority of people who
heard Creatore's band It Is one of the great
bands of the world, and Creatore Is a grand
but somewhat eccentric conductor. Others
present at the three concerts, and speaking
as professional musicians, say that the band
"Is not what it Is cracked up to be and
they sneer at Creatore's mannerisms as a
conductor. So the world goes. It would be
something wonderful If we were all agreed
on everything. Speaking conservatively. It
was a rare musical privilege to hear Crea
tore's band, and the pleasant memories of
the concerts will gratefully linger In i our
minds for months. Of course. It was a Latin
band, and the musicians In it were Latins.
They played as If on fire, and gave a for
tissimo that was a young tornado, as a
fortissimo reaching to a climax ought to be.
If Anglo-Saxons played In that manner they
would be considered crazy, but such manner
isms and methods Illustrated by Creatore are
not In Anglo-Saxon blood. Here is the or
chestration of Creatore's band: Flutes, two;
one piccolo; oboes, two; one English horn;
aaxophones, four; bassoons, two; bass clari
nets, fifteen; twelve B flats, and thre E
fiats: French horns, three; trumpets, four;
fluegel horns, two; E flat alto horns, three;
solo trombones, two; trombones, three; one
bass trombone; baritones, two; one E flat
tuba; B Sat tubas, two; tympanl; small
drum; base drum; gong, and. harp soloist. An
other thing: Creatore roared at his musician.
Inspiring them to a climax. American mu
sicians would not permit this, neither would
they blow their Instruments until they got
red In the face, and finished in a condition
suggesting physical collapse. Such excessive
work, however, seems to agree with Creatore.
He is not thin or cadaverous, and looks stout.
He shakes his hair as If It, were a mane.
Wonder what would happen were he suddenly
to become bald?

vealed the ystartllng fact that 301 girls
under the age of 18 have been married
In Chicago In the last IS months, and that
nearly one-third of this number were
under 14 when the wedding bells were
rung for them. In consequence of the
revelations, the question of a state law
to prohibit girls marrylns under the age
of 18 Is being seriously agitated by the
child-saving bureau atjd other charitable
The investigation also la said to have
proved the existence of a traffic in child
wives between the Italians of this and
the old country. The most common prac
tice, Is for a father to migrate to America,
find a husband for a young daughter left
behind, and offer bis child In marriage to
a favored friend, if he will pay the cost
of her transportation from Italy to this
side. In this way the father gets his
family reunited without a great expendi
ture of money. In some cases the suitor
Is asked to pay the fare of the mother
and any other children in the family as
part of . the marriage contract.
In connection with the matter Secretary
Bodine, of the compulsory education de
partment, in a special report, says:
"The marriage system in Chicago Is a
farce, and the weak marriage law of Illi
nois is responsible for many of the di
vorces In Chicago. Marriage licenses are
as easy to obtain as a dog tag, and the
only material difference Is that it costs
50 cents more to keep a dog than It does
to be taxed for marrying a girl."
In many Instances where child wives
were found It was also revealed that the
husband was old enough to be the father
of the bride, and In several instances
mothers under 20 were found to have
half a dozen children.
Professor Finds New Tobacco.
Professor Frederick Starr, of the Uni
versity of Chicago, the eminent anthrop
ologist, has Introduced a new kind of to
bacco on the university campus, and his
experiments have caused the new "poison
squad," as It has been dubbed, using It to
"see" many wierd things. The weed "in
toxicates the eyes."
"When Professor Starr was In 2Iexico
recently he found a big mountain Indian
smoking the "raarlhumana" as it is
called. The native told of wonderful vis
Ions that came with the smoke, and the'
energetic university Instructor at once
obtained a lot of the "dope" and brought
it back to Chicago with him.
On his return, In casting about for good
subjects on whom to experiment, the pro
fessor selected "Big Ed" Perry, the agri
culturist, wfio won fame on the gridiron
last Fall In many a hard-fought battle.
"When the giant youth smoked, the pro
fessor watched him Intently, having In
his hand at the time the notes he had
taken of the. Indian's experiences. Ac
cording to this written version, the In
dian had seen the happy hunting: grounds,
where "tortillas" and plantain were pre
pared for his meal by a swarm df beau
tiful Indian maidens.
Perry saw nothing like that. But he did
see a gridiron, with the grandstand
crowded -with many beautiful women, and
he made- a run of a thousand yards, for
In his vision the football field was length
ened. After the effects of the "smoke"
had apparently worn away the student
left the "den" of the professor and start
ed home. He was found by friends sev
eral hours later many miles from his
home, wandering" around and unable to
find his way home. He said his mind
and legs were perfectly normal, but his
"eyes were drunk." and he had all sorts
of visions of "treadins on air" and that
sort of thing experiences similar to De
Qiilncy In his "Confessions of an Opium
eater." A few nights later, several other stu
dents were experimented on. and all were
similarly affected. Professor Starr will
continue his experiments until he has de
termined Just what the effect of mari
humana Is. Several of the "co-eds" have
been Invited to become "subjects," but
all up to date have refused.
Lunch Ends a Funeral.
"Having" witnessed many wrangles
after funerals over the payment of
lunches on the return from the cem

want the boys to eat and have a good
time with me."
In accordance with this last request
left by "Barney McNeil. Democratic

cemetery was taken to a roadhouse fn

Oil Wells In Chicago.
Hundreds of .men. women and. chil
dren discussed with excitement this
week what is said to be the first actual
discovery of petroleum wells In Chi
cago. The wells were found In tna
heart of one of the most thickly popu
lated sections of the West Side, and
only a short distance from the busi
ness center, and scores of buckets con
taining' the stuff were carried away by
those attracted to the scene.
The discovery was made by work
men excavating for a store building'.
"When the men had sone down only
eight feet the odor of oil was detected,
and a foot deeper the petroleum fas
found in large quantities. Experts say
they have known for a long time that
there are oil wells under Chicago, but
that It is not to be found In sufflclently
large quantities to make it valuable to
the company of which Mr. Rockefeller
is the head. And In this connection it
Is recalled that In the earlier days
many stories were told of gTeat cav
erns lylngr under the city. "While many
of these are partly filled "with water,
the most of them are empty.
Has Shekel Paid to Judas.
Harry Serlis, general agent of a dis
tilling company at the stockyards, has
in his possession a coin which Is said
to be one of the five shekels preserved,
from among the 30 pieces which the
high priests of Jerusalem paid to Judas
Iscariot for the betrayal of Christ. He
came into possession of the coin six
years ago, but it was only within the
last lew days that Its existence in Chi
cago became generally known. It is
almost as large as a half-dollar piece,
but somewhat thicker. On one side is
a sort of a chalice or cup, from which,
a plant or s"hrub branches forth. On
the, reverse side are Jewish words
meaning "Shekel Jerusalem.
The coin is said by experts to bear a
striking resemblance to the "mysteri
ous fifth shekel" that was stolen sev
eral years agd from Marx Fisher, the
wealthy coin collector of New Tork.
This is said to have been at one time
the property of Godfrey of Jerusalem,

refused an offer of $22,000 for the coin
Jrom the Rothschilds of London. Ser
lis bought the coin from a friend who
had made a pilgrimage to the Holy
Millionaires' Club's Waiters Strike.
The cold, selfish calculations of sor
did waiters marred the swell, luncheon
of the Millionaires' Club one day this
week. The home of this exclusive or
ganization, the members of which are
worth more than a billion dollars, was
only recently opened, and the gentle
men who know more about money than
anything else, were in readiness to re
gale themselves with an unusually In
viting menu which the chef had pre
pared, when the announcement came
that the waiters had struck, and that
the guests would have to go elsewhere
for their mid-day meal, unless they
chose to "sling their own hash." And,
this Is what some of the members did
do. The vast majority, however, made
a gentle retreat to other club3 of
which they are members. The trouble
came over the superintendent proclaim
ing the edict that the waiters .would
not be allowed to , handle the money of
the guests that the guests must pay
their checks In person to the cashier.
As "tips"' had previously amounted
anywhere from $1 to $10, the waiters
considered the new order was a direct
thrust at perquisites.
